Day 56 of 365. I'm still in Computer Virus Hell...but it's been a productive day. Maybe the beginning of the end is in sight.

    Been there. Done that.
  • Lori Franz Photography PRO 8y

    I'm just impressed you getting rid of it on your own!
  • Bev Sykes 8y

    Don't be that impressed. My part is trying to back up files I should have been backing up for years. When I get that done, I'll turn it over to a computer geek to do a re-install of XP

    Poor Lady! I truly understand! It's why I switched to a Mac years ago. I've only had one major meltdown since (thank goodness!). I hope you get things running smoothly soon!
  • James May PRO 8y

    My heart goes out to you, Bev...but I'm wondering...if you're gonna pay someone to reinstall...why not have them do the back up? Can't they do it faster because they know all the tricks? Just wondering! :o) Hang in there!!!!!!!
  • Bev Sykes 8y

    He'll do most of the backup but there were some files I wanted to make sure got off and got organized (no, not porn, you silly boy...)
  • Nanna J PRO 8y

    lol, if it woeren't for my computer honey, I'd be like this... wait... I do look like that sometimes... ha!
    good luck.

    Backing up I hate to do. Should set a date of the week each week and move stuff. Notice I said should.

    I just bought an external hard drive and intend to save documents on it instead of my hard drive. I hope that helps.

    Hi basykes -- we just used your (seriously excellent!) picture over at Lifehacker to illustrate a story about computer annoyances:

    Thanks for making it CC, and for making it fun to look at ;)

    Great Picture :-)
    I am remaking a clip of mine dedicated to hard working programmers and I am looking for new pictures for the remake.
    the clip as it is now appears on youtube under "And So You Code"

    I would very much like to use this picture of yours in the new clip.
    I will of course make sure that full credit is given to every picture owner also with links to the owner's web site.
    Just tell me what I should write under: Name, Location, and URLs.

    Please tell me if it is OK to use your picture (basykes/490907537/) in the clip remake at

    Thank You,
  • Bev Sykes 5y

    Sure. It's fine. Thank you. Just use the name, Bev Sykes
